And now Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws reported that former Atletico Madrid keeper is set to’ move back to the Spanish capital.
The 26-year-old will earn £11.5million per season at Real Madrid, a significant increase on his £7.2m-a-year salary at Chelsea.
He is currently holidaying in Tenerife and waiting for a phone call from the West London club.

Chelsea want to sign a replacement for Belgian keeper and their top target Alisson is likely to sign for Liverpool meaning that they will have to look elsewhere to get the deal done.
